06/29/18 - Stock Market Comments
Today's positive trading is strong enough to bring the Dow and the S&P 500 back up through the T-line after forming piercing signals yesterday. The transportation index is forming a good MorningStar signal at the 200 day moving average. The NASDAQ has gapped up after a piercing signal off the 50 day moving average and is currently nudging the T-line. A bullish reversal still requires a close near the top end of today's trading range in the indexes.

The NASDAQ continues to trade higher, the transportation index is forming a nice scoop pattern, the S&P 500 is in a nice slow uptrend above the 3T-line, and the Dow is trading basically flat but still above the 3T-line.

The market uptrend is solid, based upon the backing and filling in each of the indexes as the overall trend moves higher. There's backing and filling reveals the lack of any exuberance in the market trend. The slow steady uptrend indicates no change of investor sentiment.

Although the Dow continues to trade strong today, profit-taking is evident in the other indexes. It will be important for the Dow to maintain its strength. If it starts trading lower in correlation with the other indexes pulling back, the profit-taking/consolidation would produce more prospects of profit-taking occurring over the next few trading days.
